It is so easy to give up. but I can't. Fact of the matter is giving up is not an option. The Bible tell us 2 Chronicles 15:7 "But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded." and even those who are of no religious affiliation cannot deny that those who keep at it persevere. You hear it all the time from everyone around you they say things like "don't give up" and "be storng" but then why are we so quick to lose hope when we have to travel up a rocky hill.??
I told myself at the beginning of the year that I would do everything in my power to gain peace in my heart and mind. with only three weeks to the end of the year I realize that I haven't found that peace, I'm just as troubled and stressed if not more than last year and while evaluating the steps that I've taken to find this peace I realize that I haven't done too good at keeping true to that promise. So tonight I find myself telling a friend and telling myself do not give up because the end is no where near, and the only way to get to where you want to go is by taking that first step and continue to move forward without ever looking back.
